開年不利!酒店轉點不再計入西南航空同行票里程【SW決定酒店轉點有效延長到3月31日】

真是「良心」航司啊!又是著名博主點哥The Points Guy的消息,西南航空決定把酒店轉點有效期延長到3月31日!

原文:http://thepointsguy.com/2017/01/southwest-companion-pass-transfer-eligibility-march-2017/

As we began the New Year on January 1, we took the opportunity to close a loophole in our Rapid Rewards Companion Pass terms and conditions related to transferred points from our Partners. This was an effort intended to clarify qualification requirements for Companion Pass, one of the best benefits in travel, as well as to protect the integrity and value of the Rapid Rewards program.

 

In doing so, we updated our terms and conditions which now clearly state that points transferred from hotel and car loyalty programs, and e-Rewards, e-Miles, Valued Opinions and Diners Club will no longer count toward qualification for a Companion Pass. Members will continue to earn toward Companion Pass benefits through paid flights flown on Southwest, Points earned through spend with Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards credit cards, and base points earned through transactions with Rapid Rewards partners.

 

Many of you have reached out to us since then, and we greatly appreciate your honest and candid feedback. Because we are a Company that values our Customers and believes in doing the right thing, we are offering a limited window for Customers to earn toward Companion Pass by transferring their loyalty points from these Partners.

 

To that end, points converted from the above mentioned programs will count towards a Companion Pass until March 31, 2017. This is a hard deadline and we will not be able to make any exceptions beyond March 31. If you have points with these Partners that you wanted to transfer, please do not wait. Make the transfer before the deadline.

 

We appreciate all of our Customers and look forward to seeing you onboard very soon!

有意願拿下西南航空基友票的盆友趕緊下手吧!


17年一開頭就不是好新聞啊!

根據The Points Guy消息:酒店積分轉入西南航空的里程將不再計入Companion Pass的有效里程!

We』re working to protect the integrity and value of Southwest』s industry-unique Rapid Rewards® Companion Pass by closing a loophole that previously allowed Members to transfer mileage and points from other partner loyalty programs toward qualification for a Companion Pass. As we closed this loophole, we also updated our terms and conditions which now clarifies that points converted from hotel and car loyalty programs, and e-Rewards, e-Miles, Valued Opinions and Diners Club will no longer count toward qualification for a Companion Pass. Members will continue to earn Companion Pass benefits through paid flights flown on Southwest, points earned through spend with Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards credit cards, and base points earned through transactions with Rapid Rewards partners.

西南航空的基友票差不多算是基友票中最給力的!只要攢夠110k有效點數,就可以獲得一年多的同行者免費票,不限次數,甚至SW點數兌換的票都可以使用基友票。以前大家主要靠以下三種方法來獲得基友票:

  • 乘坐Southwest的飛機
  • 聯名信用卡獲取里程(開卡獎勵也算)
  • 酒店轉點(包括萬豪大禮包)

Chase UR點數直接轉點本來就是不算的。因為SPG->Marriott 1:3轉點的關係,相信不少朋友也在囤積萬豪/SPG點數準備今年初一舉拿下SW的基友票(17年年初拿到的Companion Pass能一直到18年底),但是根據TPG消息顯示,從今天起,酒店轉的點數就一概不作數了!

失去了酒店轉點這一利器,目前最大的捷徑看來就是得依靠Chase Southwest聯名卡了,兩張卡都開也能有100k點數了,但遺憾的是SW的兩張卡都在524限制之內…What the hell…
